For what it's worth, we had those cut out front drop in type dish racks on a PB and the annoying thing is the tendency for the dishes to leap out. My solution, while not exactly elegant, was to attach a length of shock cord to two points at the back with a hook at the front. Easily rigged for going to sea but easily removed when in smooth waters or at anchor. Never lost a single plate.

(Nice story btw. Trust you beat the life out the bugger who nicked your slip.)
